Tannery Museum

Tannery Museum

Porras tannery - or leather factory - was established in early 1880's and nowdays it's presumably the only tannery museum in Finland exhibiting the tanning of late 19th century and early 20th century - and still remaining in its original location.

Especially rare and culturohistorically valuable the Porras tannery is because of the fact that in addition to the tannery building there is remaining also plenty of artefacts and some documents relating to the old tanning industry. All the machinery used in the leather manufacturing in the Porras tannery as well as the smaller tools of the shoemakers and saddlers are still in their old places in the building.

Old storage spaces of the building are now serving as a cafe-restaurant which also provides a beautiful and inspiring environment for different type of conferences and family celebrations.

Accommodation building has served as a home for the employees of Porras tannery, and it has been refurbished just few years back for the accommodation purposes. Two suites, one for max. 4 people and the other one for max. 6 people, plus two extra beds available in both suites. The accommodation fee depends on the number of people staying over night. In both suites there is an own kitchen and a shower.
